Download it here:

There's not an XML file for it yet though.

The pack is right there in the first post. It doesn't include the latest additions, but it's there Smile Just use it until FernFerret comes up with a solution for the xml problem.
Cheers

Hey y'all, here is why this is taking so long: I was stupid.

I coded the script to just use an xml file, and edit it when needed, well it started getting way to hairy to keep doing that so now there is an ALPHA version that i am testing that uses MYSQL, that will export an XML file.

People who add images, (you know who you are Smile ) you will be receiving a PM later today with the new info, it shouldn't look any different, but it will have a few more fields:

imdb_title and others.

Thanks for your patience,

Ok everyone the XML support is DONE! Now there is one bad thing... We (the picture uploaders and myself) have to rebuild the database, basically just resubmit ALL the pictures. So until that gets done there may be one or two missing. I just request that people

DO NOT USE THE SCRIPT until my next post.

You can use it, but you won't get them all Smile

Awesome FernFerret, thanks for all your work! This is a wonderful resource Nod


Script Working WITH XML - FernFerret - 2009-04-17 04:43

DONE. Ok so here is the deal, and I'll post links here too.

If you want ALL the studio icons WITH a Standard XML File (The one that comes with the SVN of STARK)
Most users will want this!
Left Click this link:
http://www.fernferret.com/xbmc/mediaflags/getFiles.php

If you're like me and you have things tag your NFO with source information directly into the Studio tag:
Code:
<studio>Art Linson Productions / [b]BluRay [/b]/ 720p / DTS / 6ch / </studio>
then use this link
http://www.fernferret.com/xbmc/mediaflags/getFiles.php?source=studio

Also, I know it's not very good (typed it really fast) but please read the readme and help me make it better.

On a Third note. If you find any that Don't work/Wrong etc. Please post them here so they can be updated!

Thanks all,
--FF

A couple issues-

1. The XML file doesn't support reading the video source from the folder name
2. There are a bunch that overlap. Example: Industrial Light and Magic shows up on any film with the letters "ilm" in its studio tags.. so thats any with the word "film" in them as well

There are also some that were in Aeon and are now listed twice or have two logos for some reason:
- 20th century fox
- revolution studios
- columbia tristar (once as columbia, once as tristar)

As for the ILM problem. Are there even any movies by ILM since it is only a special effects studio.

Maybe we could have a small app that reads all studios from the XBMC database and then upload the list to the page, where it is compared to the already available studios. All studios that do not have a logo yet can then be filled by users/designers with a logo. If some people upload their list we can see which ones are popular and fill them up.

Good, these are the issues we're looking for. I knew some would arise.
I'll get ILM fixed, let me know if there are others, eventually the script will check for that but i've worked on it for about 8 hours today and i'm just bushed.

EDIT: Fixed ILM to Industrial Light and Magic

ccMatrix: Thank you for catching these, I had had them in there for testing, and they need to be removed.

EDIT: Were removed, except for the FOX one, as it is for the TV network (Eventually supported by AEON, but currently in there for Serenity).

I have my video folders named via the source, then i use Media Flag Updater (http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=48138&highlight=Media+Flag+Updater) to turn that source into the nfo file, I just prefer all my info in the same place.

For the flags that make problems, maybe you could use something like that:
Code:
substring(listitem.studio,Century Fox)
substring(listitem.studio,FOX,Left)

If I understand the Wiki http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=List_of_Boolean_Conditions correctly this will only search from the beginning. This could also be a solution to the ILM issue.


- FernFerret - 2009-04-17 08:03

The problem with the imeadiate fix is that these cases are anomalies, and i dont (currently) support anomalies. Remember this XML file is being generated based on the list of names it is given. I just need to add a custom code field to the database, and voila problem solved, i'll see about doing that tomorrow.

So in summary, you are correct, but this problem will persist until AT LEAST tomorrow.

Also working on haveing the site show when someone last did an update.
